South Florida Bulls vs. San Francisco Dons men's college basketball preview

USF vs. San Francisco

When/where: 5 p.m.; South Point Arena, Las Vegas

Radio: 1250-AM

Records: USF 8-2, San Francisco 3-7

Notable: It's USF vs. USF, as the teams meet in the first day of the Las Vegas Holiday Hoops Classic. A win for the Bulls would match their total for all of last season — USF bounced back from a tough loss to Central Michigan on Sunday by beating Central Florida on Wednesday, led by junior G Dominique Jones' 27 points. Jones leads the Bulls with 18.2 points per game, and junior C Jarrid Famous had a double double Wednesday and is averaging 10.8 points and 7.2 rebounds. … The Bulls get back PG Justin Leemow, who missed Wednesday's game to attend to a family illness in New York. … San Francisco has dropped seven of eight, with the lone win against San Jose State. The Dons are led by 6-foot-7 F and former Texas Tech star Dior Lowhorn (19.3 ppg). The Bulls play San Diego on Sunday before returning home, then open Big East play Dec. 30 at Louisville.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — On June 10, 2009, the Brewers selected a Sarasota High School shortstop in the 16th round of the MLB draft. He'd assembled an impressive resume in prep ball, but as one of more than 1,500 players drafted that year, he had a tough road to the big leagues.

    Cincinnati Reds second baseman Scooter Gennett (4) of Sarasota makes the throw to first as Rays DH Trevor Plouffe (14) grounds into a double play at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg Monday, June 19, 2017. For Gennett, the three-game series this week with the Rays was his first trip back to Tampa Bay since his historic four-home run game June 6, 2017 against St. Louis. DIRK SHADD   |   Times
